This is the point at which you need to move family photos and other items which personalise your property out of sight, in order for your potential buyer to imagine themselves living there.
The viewer needs to put their own stamp on the property and if it is stuffed full of personal objects or family portraits, then they will find it more difficult to imagine this. Items such as a mirror hung in the hallway are far more effective, as they can give the impression of space and the viewer can directly see themselves in the property, thus helping them to imagine themselves living there.
By keeping the décor neutral, you are also more likely to appeal to the majority and entice more buyers which will ultimately help you to sell your property faster. As well as this, the property will feel brighter and more spacious giving the appearance of a more organised home.
